To produce wines as close as possible to the terroir
"The 2019 Taillefer is a bold, luscious Pomerol that will drink well right out of the gate. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, spice, rose petal, blood orange and mint build nicely in the glass. This is an especially plush, ripe style, but it all works well."

In 1923, when Antoine Moueix decided to acquire Château Taillefer, he knew full well what he was doing. As a Bordeaux wine merchant, he knew the history of Chateau Taillefer and the potential of its terroir. Château Taillefer is one of the crus that were accounted for on the map of France established in 1776 by the geographer of Louis XV. And, since the Napoleonic land register where Château Taillefer, its cellars and its plots were described with the utmost precision, all has been preciously conserved for over two centuries.
Located on the plateau of Pomerol, the vineyard is all around the Château. The 12 hectares are palnted with Merlot and Cabernet Franc and is one of the twenty largest Pomerol properties. The famous iron deposits, characteristic of the terroir of Pomerol, they impart complexity to the wine together with minerality and aromas of truffles and violets.
